    Not difficult, but a pain
    Here's a good example of RD efficiency.

    In the case above, my wife's card was confiscated by Migracion - expired.

    We duly reported and got the replacement at Migracion.

    The confiscated card was in her file.
    It had been confiscated and returned to SD.

    It made me wonder why we needed the police report.
    In fact, the renewal was in process and my wife had left during the 'waiting period'
    so we only the old card to trade for the new one.

    Keystone Kops.

    Should be easy once I get the police report, but the police need an escribano to prepare one, and so far the PN in Cabarete don't have an escribano.

    They only need that paper, you have to pay something (5000 pesos if I remember it good) and you get it right away.
    Thats correct! My wife had her expired resedencia confiscated at the airport a couple years ago on entry. It was cheaper to report it stolen and the first thing to do it file a police report. Go figure! Respectfully

    I finally succeeded in submitting my online application for the replacement residency card following the instructions above. PLEASE NOTE and this may apply to applications online for anything from Immigration: there are no upload instructions regarding file format, and I wasted a lot of time trying to upload in .pdf format. It turns out that all documents to be uploaded must be in .jpg format and you need to keep the file size small. The general phone number for Immigration has not worked all week, so you can forget trying to get an explanation by phone.

    Glad you were able to do it. I'm going to edit the thread title to include "applying online" so it will be easier to search for in the future
